And the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as cthe rose.
2 dIt shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice
Even with joy and singing:
They shall see the glory of the Lord,
And the excellency of our God.
3 iStrengthen ye the weak hands,
And confirm the feeble knees.
4 Say to them that are of a †fearful heart,
Be strong, fear not:
Behold, your God will come with vengeance,
Even God with a recompence;
He will come and save you.
5 Then kthe eyes of the blind shall be opened,
6 Then shall mthe lame man leap as an hart,
And streams in the desert.
8 And an highway shall be there, and wa way,
And it shall be called The way of holiness;
The wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
9 yNo lion shall be there,
Nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon,
It shall not be found there;
But zthe redeemed shall walk there:
10 aAnd the ransomed of the Lord shall return,
aAnd everlasting joy upon their heads:
